WICHITA FALLS, Texas – Brenna Busby broke the Cameron University program record for home runs in a career, as the Aggies took down Nebraska-Kearney on Saturday for their sixth straight victory.
The Aggies came into Saturday afternoon riding a five-game winning streak, including two dominating wins to kick off this weekend’s Midwestern State Invitational.
Cameron wasted no time getting off to a hot start against the Lopers. Leadoff slugger Brenna Busby clubbed a home run to start the contest. That home run was her 46th career home run, which gave her the program lead for most home runs in a career. Her day wasn’t done there, she slapped another solo shot in the top of the sixth inning to give her 47 career homers and put this contest away.
B. Busby answered the Lopers’ second run with her second bomb of the game in the sixth and a Mikayla Oaks sacrifice flyball later in the frame gave CU their 6-2 advantage.
The Aggie bats were anything but silent today, coming around to score six times on seven hits; they stranded nine runners on the base paths.
Along with B. Busby, Kylie French earned a pair of RBI’s in the win, going 2-4 and coming around to score once. Breley Webb was the third Aggie to turn in a multi-hit game (2-4), but the offense left her stranded each time.
In the circle, Bethany Hines tossed five innings, punching out five hitters while giving up just a pair of runs. Hines is now 5-4 on the year with 50 strikeouts and a 3.78 ERA.
Turner Whorton finished the game off by pitching two scoreless innings. Whorton struck out four of her eight batters faced in this contest.
Fresh off a Friday double-dip where they allowed just four hits combined, Whorton and Hines allowed just six hits and two walks combined against UNK.
Cameron, now 8-5 on the season, will wrap up the MSU Invitational on Sunday with a matchup against the Regis Rangers at 11 a.m. in Wichita Falls.
